Qualcomm Incorporated, today kicked off its QPrize™ 2012 international venture investment competition to identify and fund the industry’s most promising, early-stage technology companies. The Qualcomm Ventures QPrize competition is open to entrepreneurs across China, India, Israel, Korea, North America, Western Europe and, new this year, Brazil and Eastern Europe. One finalist from each region will be awarded US$100,000 (€100,000 for Europe finalists) in convertible note financing from Qualcomm as seed funding and will be invited to compete against other regional finalists in the QPrize Grand Prize competition. The Grand Prize winner will receive an additional US$150,000 of convertible note funding to help transform his or her innovative business plan into reality.

The deadline to submit business plans for most regions is August 17, 2012. From the pool of competing entries, Qualcomm Ventures will select up to eight finalists from the eight contest markets. Entrants’ submitted business plans will be evaluated by a panel of experts based on the merits of the technology innovation, its market potential, the company’s management capabilities and the attainability of the proposal’s financial projections.
